A plane taking off without you can be a nightmare for you. In the best case scenario, you'll have to pay hefty fees to get on a different flight. The worst case is when you have to buy a new ticket. There are many causes of being late for a flight such as traffic jams, problems with your hotel shuttle, a car accident etc. Because you can never predict some of these incidents, the best approach is to give yourself enough time even if you run into some unforeseen problems.
When it comes to conducting business, there's nothing like getting people together in person. We have become a bit spoiled with the internet and the advent of such sophisticated technology, to the point that people are becoming less social. However, there is nothing better for business than having a face-to-face conversation with people. With this in mind, you should begin planning a conference or networking event that is useful to your business and helpful to your industry.
